We have a 67 fastback with a 460, GM Turbo 400 transmission and the stock
shifter. We just fabricated the rod out of some electrical conduit. It's not
a big deal. Measure, bend, try, bend some more, hammer the ends flat, drill
holes, done. I can't see a problem with lengthening the stock C4 rod. There
is not a lot of force there. You may need to move the pin on the C6 shift
arm to get the positions correct. Had a C6 in a Maverick and had a real
problem getting Park and First to work with the shifter's travel.
